The Kenney is a unique and historic non-profit Continuing Care Retirement Community ("CCRC") in West Seattle. Many recognize The Kenney's historic cupola, lovely campus and gorgeous gardens, all set in our idyllic location near Lincoln Park and Puget Sound, with views of the Sound and Olympic Mountains from the West side of our community. The Kenney is an integral part of West Seattle. Generations of seniors and their families have been attracted to The Kenney by our high quality care and services, as well as robust life enrichment opportunities that keep our seniors vibrant, active and engaged ~ inside and outside The Kenney. Our residents have led, and continue to lead, interesting lives. Seniors at The Kenney have the opportunity to thrive for all their days ~ surrounded by love and compassion, engaged and connected with activities and peers and supported with services, care and housing that promote optimum health, dignity and respect. At The Kenney, our seniors are secure in knowing they won't find themselves without a home, even if they run out of resources due to no fault of their own. Started as a non-profit in 1901, our Board of Directors included members of Seattle's pioneer families who were committed to the vision of Jessie and Samuel Kenney to provide a home for people in their "golden years" where love, dignity and respect are practiced and people are cared for regardless of ability or income. These historic Kenney values remain today. The Kenney is committed to continuing to provide quality care even if a resident is no longer able to pay for that care. Seniors at The Kenney are living the good life in West Seattle - modern living at the historic Kenney. Our residents, their friends and families have the security of knowing The Kenney can meet the changing needs of our residents in the future. We offer a full spectrum of living options for seniors. Most residents live independently in apartments and age-in-place. When their needs increase, The Kenney offers seven levels of personalized in-home care and specialized memory care. As West Seattle's only Continuing Care Retirement Community ("CCRC"), seniors at The Kenney are offered an enriched quality of life no matter what their age, health, mental or physical condition. The Kenney is committed to providing cutting edge, evidence based life enrichment activities and care in a love-filled environment. Activities offered keep our seniors active and mentally challenged ~ from music therapy and a range of fitness classes for every ability, to continuing holiday traditions and cultural excursions.
